NON-FOR-PROFIT INTRODUCES £24 COVID-19 TESTING KITS FOR FRONTLINE HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS WITH RESULTS IN 10 MINUTES AND PROFITS GOING TO THE NHS
The UK’s most vulnerable frontline healthcare workers now have much-needed access to affordable and rapid COVID-19 testing.
Coronatest.org.uk is a non-for-profit organisation and is offering £24 testing kits exclusively to frontline healthcare workers that are backed by a 97% accuracy rate and offer results in just 10 minutes.
Coronatest.org.uk are proud to be sharing all profits with NHS staff and other allied healthcare workers to enable them to purchase more personal protective equipment and other needed essentials.
NHS workers and other healthcare professionals are risking their lives each and every day to help Britain get through this unprecedented pandemic – and many are going without testing unless presenting with significant symptoms. The NHS recently announced they would begin testing more of their frontline staff, but this initial rollout is only for those who already display symptoms and those who live with people who have symptoms – plus it does not include those in the industry that are not part of the NHS.
The affordable tests can detect a-symptomatic patients and are all CE marked and IVD certified for professional use by healthcare workers in the UK. There’s no need to send the results to a lab either – users will receive results on the test itself showing if they are a) in early stages of infection, b) fully positive for COVID-19 or c) not infected at all.
Other providers of similar tests are charging in excess of £120 per test and have less accuracy or need to be sent to a lab to confirm results.
The new tests by Coronatest.org.uk ensure all frontline workers – including pharmacists, dentists, and opticians – will receive adequate and affordable testing to ensure they are not spreading the virus to patients and loved ones, especially handy if they are not yet showing symptoms and are thus ineligible for testing, or cannot afford the high-cost alternatives.
